Pathway to Licensure: How to Become a Professional Engineer in Canada

Sunday, October 20, 2019
Room 506-507

Led by Rosalie Hanlon, Director of Outreach & Partnerships at Engineers Nova Scotia

From Engineer in Training to Licensed Engineer, this workshop will help guide you on the general requirements to become a P.Eng in Canada. While each province has its own specific process for licensure, the general requirements remain the same. In this workshop, common questions such as how to register, what experience qualifies, and what the practice exam entails will be answered. The presentation will also offer the opportunity to ask any questions you may have regarding this topic.

With a passion for equity, diversity and inclusion, Rosalie is focused on increasing the number of women entering the engineering profession.
